Ian Somerhalder Teases "Hot Vampire Sex" on CW Drama

at . Comments

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine, Ian Somerhalder says he “can’t imagine playing any role other than Damon" right now.

Viewers of The Vampire Diaries are glad he feels that way, as the former Lost star steals every scene he's in as one half of the mysterious Salvatore brothers on this CW hit.

Turns out, though, a different set of blood-sucking fans were close to watching the actor on another vampire drama, if an earlier audition had gone well.

“I wanted to do True Blood so badly,” he told the publication. “I just didn’t nail it, and Ryan Kwanten got the role. So I was not going to let this one go. Damon is Dionysius - he has an appetite for everything.”

Can you imagine Ian Somerhalder in the role of Jason Stackhouse? Ryan Kwanten, and Vampire Diaries fans, are happy with the way things turned out.

It's an appetite producer Kevin Williamson vows to feed throughout the season, saying: “We have a blast coming up with various killing scenes. He takes people out left and right.”

What else will go down on the show? Are there any Vampire Diaries spoilers Somerhalder can spill? Without getting specific, he said:

"There’s a lot of drama, violence and hot vampire sex."

Nice. We'll take it!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
